Plaza Jewish was created to give families an alternative to the corporate owned chapels in the vicinity. Plaza is owned and operated by the Jewish community so our sole concern is our families, not shareholders or corporate stakeholders.
We have compared the prices for the services that would likely be included in planning a funeral service.
COMPARE THE DIFFERENCE
Remember that Plaza is here for your 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 212-769-4400.
These prices are taken from published General Price Lists of some of the funeral homes in our area. Please note that the services below are often among those chosen but do not limit the choices offered by Plaza Jewish Community Chapel or any other funeral service provider you may choose.
The funeral provider must give the General Price List list upon beginning any discussion of services or goods provided. Federal Trade Commission in its funeral rule mandates that funeral homes must supply a copy of their General Price List when asked.

PLAZA: THE RESPONSE TO RISING FUNERAL COSTS
We are dedicated professionals whose sole mission is to help families select the arrangements that suit their individual needs in an atmosphere of caring and trust that is free of commercial pressure. The information on costs presented here is not intended to replace a personal meeting with our funeral directors but is designed to facilitate greater understanding of the typical charges that appear on a funeral contract and why the cost of a funeral can easily exceed expectations by thousands of dollars.
Because those who purchase funerals are often in a highly vulnerable emotional state and are more readily susceptible to questionable sales practices, the sale of funerals is closely regulated by the Federal Trade Commission.
The FTC enforces a “Funeral Rule” which is a compilation of regulations designed to protect consumers. Click here to view Funeral Rule.
We are here for you.That may seem like a simple and obvious statement, but it is all too uncommon. We are not like other funeral chapels. Not in philosophy, not in practice.
We are dedicated to the belief that the process of grief is not a business proposition but rather an emotional, human passage to be treated with dignity and conscience. That is our sole motivation.
We are not like others, nor do we strive to be. We promise to take you through this difficult time with care, with sensitivity, and with thoughtfulness. We do not hurry decisions. We do not feel there is a relationship between what is spent and what has been lost. There is only what is right for you and your family.
We encourage you to decide what your own approach and values dictate, what makes you comfortable, what your family member or friend would have wanted, and to follow that guidance.
ABOUT PLAZA JEWISH
